    I was getting a vapor recovery code which suggested checking the gas cap. I had lost my original cap about 2 years ago and bought a replacement from Advance Auto I believe it was also a Stant. Although the cap currently installed looked fine (seals, gaskets, o ring etc) it was the cheapest and easiest repair to try. Bought this cap and noticed it was made quite different than the one purchased before. I didn't reset the code but just installed the new cap to see what happened. About 60 miles later the engine light went out I was reading no codes and all was fine. I'm not sure if the 1st cap went bad, was a design flaw or what but all is fine now and it was a cheap fix.

    Will NOT Accomodate the Factory Rubber Line (or or teather, or cord) connecting the Cap To The Car. So Its Easy To Lose Or Leave at the Gas Station while refilling. I am not sure if a hole can be drilled into the cap to accept the factory cord either.

    The sealing gasket and cap in general seam inferior to OEM gas cap.

    Only Recommend this if buyer does not care about having gas cap secured to vehicle, while refilling with gas

            DO NOT DRILL HOLE FOR TEATHER

            Pros

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Stant Plastic Gas Cap:

                  I bought this because my check engine light came on and the engine service code revealed an emissions leak related to a faulty gas cap. Another reviewer left a comment stating that this cap could be drilled to accommodate the factory tether strap. This is not the case with the recent model of this cap. Drilling the hole in this cap will destroy the built in spring tension and the cap will not work properly. If attaching the strap isn't important to you then this cap will serve the purpose. Even though I couldn't get it to click one time as instructed on the cap, it seemed to work ok before drilling the hole.

                  It works as promised. It would be better if it had an indent slot so you could use the tether strap that comes with the original cap. It's too easy to put the cap on the pump and forget it.

                            Yes, a Check Engine light comes due to various reasons. It could be as serious as a blown head gasket or as simple as a loose gas cap. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                            Both, gas caps can improve the comsuption of the gas by avoiding the evopration of the gas & you have to drive in the vehicle in economy speed to save the gas.
